What can you expect?
The attractive Old House sits on South Street in the historic town of Rochford, where Anne Boleyn's family lived in Tudor times. The venue hides a peaceful garden, which couples can explore and enjoy as a backdrop for their wedding photographs. Built in 1270, it's one of the oldest houses in the country and would've been the height of luxury in Medieval England.
The original parts of the house have been expanded on in recent years and repurposed by Rochford District Council as an intimate space for wedding ceremonies. Inside, authentic characteristics shine through, from the white walls to the wooden beams and fireplaces.
All rooms are hired for exclusive-use of wedding parties with a maximum capacity of 26 people for the day. The ceremony takes place in The Old Hall with its original features from when it was built 750 years ago. With tall ceilings, plenty of natural light and a large mantelpiece for a beautiful floral arrangement, ceremonies here are truly unforgettable. Upstairs, there's the Bridal Suite; two spacious rooms ideal for members of the wedding party to get ready.
Receptions are held in the Honey Room. A cosy space, it's ideally suited to toast the newlyweds while they have their photographs taken.
The venue is brimming with authentic features such as the eye-catching grand fireplace and hammer-beam ceiling.
